    Wow… I so wish I could anonymously send that Technolawyer article to a few people I know!!!!

    Too many people think being technically good is enough…it really is only part of the job.

  2. Thanks so much for the shoutout – Alta’s poached egg idea was brilliant :)

  3. One more thing – I just updated my blog post to reflect that all photos were by Alta, the guest blogger with the brilliant poached egg idea.

    @TechnoLawyer How to make Partner

    Every lawyer knows that the best way to do that is to win insane tort cases like this and get a huge cut of the damage award for your firm: http://lawblog.legalmatch.com/2010/10/29/4-year-old-child-can-be-sued-for-negligence-in-bike-accident/

      My guess is that you are not a lawyer, and as such, never took first year torts…. but alas I won’t feed the trolls…
